Stalking in Melbourne

You know how I often jest about packing my bags and moving into the houses I virtually stalk? This time I really am booking a flight, knocking on the door and politely, but very firmly, muscling my way in. Designed in 2000 by architect Allan Powell and with gardens by Eckersley Garden Architecture (2014), I'm at a loss for words. I wouldn't change a thing if it was mine accept my address. It's perfect ... well almost. I won't be able to afford it. Listing here while it lasts.

Modern Southern living

It's bright and sassy, stylish and playful, family-friendly and pattern packed. It's fun, it's fresh and so very, very liveable. This once tired and dowdy 1930s house got its fabulous makeover from Nashville-based Pencil & Paper Development Co.

Showhouse dreams

We all know that a showhouse is the platform to display an interior designer's talents, to flaunt a fantasy, to revel in their design dream. I'm just going to spend some time today entertaining a few close friends in this gorgeous sitting room by Westbrook Interiors. In my dreams at least.

California coastal

California coastal style in a New England home by Kristina Crestin Design. I am not typically a big fan of this style or the colour blue but I am totally smitten with how well put together this living room. I never would have thought to pair aqua blue, olive green and orange/tan together but it's gorgeous - and the art and patterned pillows and rug bring it all together. The bathroom is also pretty fab - modern yet really warm with the addition of golden-toned wood.
